Young Adult/Middle-Grade Intern Opening

As well as the three adult fiction interns we're looking for, we also have an opening for a remote, unpaid intern who loves to read young adult and middle-grade fiction by authors like:

Stephanie Perkins
Rebecca Stead
Patrick Ness
Gayle Forman
Jack Gantos
Rae Carson
Laura Jarrett
Philip Pullman
James Dawson
Maureen Johnson

You don't have to love (or even have read) all of those authors, but you should definitely have read more YA/MG than just THE HUNGER GAMES and HARRY POTTER! Ideally, you're an avid reader of books for young people and you're familiar with both the classics and more recently-published novels. 

Interested? Send an email to Tell us why you want the internship and something about yourself, or include a resume if you have one (but it's not necessary). Include two lists: the last ten books you read and your ten favorite YA/MG books of all time. 

We ask for a ten-hours-a-week commitment at the minimum. If you've applied in the past, you're welcome to apply again.

We usually get a great many applicants and the application period will close fairly quickly: watch this space and Twitter (@mollykh) for details.


  1. May I ask a question?
    If we have no work experience pertaining directly to this internship, should we bother including a resume? Or is that just to see whether or not we've had any prior experience working for writers/agents/editors?

  2. No need for a resume, JC, but if you're currently working for/interning with another agency or a publisher, we'd like to know.

  3. Just wondering if Canadians can apply to this internship since it is remote?
